's not been an attempt to have stability in libya. the obama administration has been repeating the mistake that the bush administration made in iraq and afghanistan. they were focused on the military campaign but not focus on the nation building. we have paid a huge cost for that in iraq afghanistan. a lot of the arms in the arsenal of muammar gaddafi have been smuggled into countries like y fueled a the fi fresh insurgency. we have taken our eye off the ball in libya ever since the overthrow of gaddafi. that's the big issue from the hearings. host: our guest is max boot, senior fellow with the council on foreign relations. was a senior foreign policy adviser to the john mccain campaign in 2008. he is the author of a new book called "invisible armies." a little more about the faces of your book -- a little more about the thesis of your book. this idea of guerrilla warfare is not something new. guest: i exam the long history of insurgency and guerrilla warfare and it predates conventional conflicts. tribal warfare is essentially grow warfare. conventional warfare is a relatively recent inve

. but outside afghanistan, the obama administration has been hesitant to put more boots on the ground. so they'll continue to rely heavily on drones. >> predators and reapers are the signature weapon of the war against al qaeda. >> reporter: president bush launched the first wave of drone strikes, mostly targeting al qaeda leaders in pakistan. then president obama took office and increased the number of targets. he expanded the program into yemen, where al qaeda was planning attacks on the u.s. and sboob lawless somalia. the pentagon and cia have been working together in those areas. over the next four year, officials want to specifically grow the partnership between intel and special operations forces. >> it is central to our ability to solve our most pressing national security challenges. >> reporter: perhaps the most pressing, a cyber attack that instruments communication, transportation and vital services across multiple states. >> these kinds of attacks could be a cyber pearl harbor. an attack that would cause physical destruction and the loss of life. >> reporter: it may not even be phys

think that the administration has understood that well? >> i think obama understands it. i think obama understands that we're in a new age. if you will, the 20th century was a century of struggle for hegemony. and that involved direct political contests, military power. we are now in an age in which struggle for hegemony makes no sense, it's more whether we can establish enough stability in the world that we can deal with global problems. in that context, economic health is the point of departure. it's also the point of departure for global support for the united states and respect for the united states. >> brown: when he brings up climate change though through security, that's what he's talking about? >> exactly. but i do suspect as a practical matter he's going to be more preoccupied with potential strategic challenges. in the middle east, first of all and that involves a whole gambit of issues, in our relations with china, potentialfully our relations with russia and the growing problem of how do we structure an effective alliance with europe. and these the kind of issues that requi

attacks blocked a main road linking the targeted town with the capital. the obama administration meanwhile reportedly has decided to exclude cia drone strikes in pakistan from new legal oversight for targeted killings overseas. the washington post reports counter-terrorism adviser and cia-nominee john brennan has signed off on a plan to exempt the drone attacks in pakistan from a list of operations that would be covered under newly enacted rules. areas covered in the so-called play book include the process for adding names to kill lists, the principles for killing u.s. citizens abroad, and the command chain for authorizing cia or u.s. military strikes outside war zones. the exemption of drone strikes in pakistan would allow the cia to continue carrying them without -- tearing them without a legal framework for a to two years. the hostage standoff in a jury of his ended in the deaths of dozens of people, including up to 48 of the captured workers. algerian forces say they recovered at least 25 bodies after storming the militant held gas complex saturday, bringing the confirmed death toll to
